WordPress Web Design is Almost Always the Best Choice
Whether you are a seasoned small business owner, a budding entrepreneur, or a sassy, wine-guzzling mommy-blogger, you need to set up your website with the WordPress Content Management System.
WordPress web design is as simple as it gets, with free one-click installation available from most major hosting companies and tons of tech support at your disposal. It’s not just from the official WordPress forums themselves, but also from the many individual theme and plugin programmers that make this platform so convenient and popular.
WordPress is the best platform on the market that combines user friendliness and customizability.
You could literally install WordPress web design software on your domain and have your website up and running in less than an hour. It is that fast and that easy. You don’t need to know anything about HTML or coding or programming languages or any of that. Just install WordPress and it’s “Hello World.”
If you just want to jump in and start writing new content, you can do that almost instantly. Of course, the time will soon come when you want to start customizing the look and navigation of the site, and that is where WordPress web design really shines.
There are tons of free themes available that will help your website stand out from the multitudes of blah that fill the world wide web. But whether you choose a free theme or pay a bit more for one of the excellent premium themes, be sure that your theme is responsive and will enable your mobile readers and customers to enjoy a smooth and seamless experience on the site.
Then there are the plugins: little apps that allow you to customize your website in almost any way imaginable. You want to add images to your sidebar? There are plugins for that. You want to track your traffic stats without using Google Analytics? Sure, there are plugins for that too. Almost anything you can imagine can be added to your website quickly and easily with WordPress plugins.
And most of these are free too.
Aside from WordPress’ nearly endless customizable options, the software is also incredibly search engine friendly. Google loves well-designed WordPress sites! And you won’t even have to worry about submitting new content to search engines all the time, as the software does it for you automatically. This feature alone can save you a lot of time and money.
But could there be a situation where WordPress is not ideal? There are, but not many.
WordPress web design does have its limits. Well, it’s not so much that WP itself is the problem, as it can even handle high functionality websites such as membership or e-commerce sites!
But sometimes you may run into an issue with a specific plugin or you bump into some limitations with your theme. Maybe you find several themes that you like, yet each of them falls short in some area. Perhaps you come to a point where you wish you could mix and match several features from a variety of themes. You may also have a website that is too specific and advanced, in which case WordPress may not be the best option. For example, if you were to rebuild twitter, you would likely be better off starting from scratch.
That is where you might be better off starting from scratch with custom web design. You may simply have a grand vision for your website that is above and beyond what is offered to you by the WordPress web design platform.
That’s okay. If you can dream it up, there is no doubt someone out there who can create the perfect website for you.
